Produced by Ben Lamdin (Nostaglia 77) and Brighton legend Prince Fatty, ‘Understand What Black Is’ is a ten-track album which speaks of a revolutionary struggle defined by both race and identity, that has never sounded more relevant. The new album 'Understand What Black Is released via UK label Studio Rockers on double LP and CD.
